The night British singer Samantha Fox sang with Freddie Mercury ….
After Queen’s sold-out concert on 12 July 1986 @ Wembley stadium was an amazing after show party @ Kensington Roof Gardens. This was a tame affair for a mere 500 guests. The show was billed as “Dicky Hart And The Pacemakers” for fun. Queen and some other stars, including Cliff Richard and Samantha Fox, had a jam session at the Kensington Roof Gardens Night Club. Tutti Frutti and Sweet Little Rock And Roller were among the songs played.
“I sang with Freddie Mercury at a party once and that was fantastic. I couldn’t believe it when he pulled me up. It was their private party in Kensington. As soon as you got into the lift there were naked women painted green, like a forest. They had midgets with little trays of drinks. You just knew it was going to be a brilliant party. Queen took the stage and they jammed for about an hour [the party itself went until about 9am]. It was amazing. And Gary Glitter got up, too! He pulled me up and asked me what songs I knew. And you know when you can’t think? I asked if he knew Touch Me and he laughed and said, ‘What about Go Johnny Go?’ We ended up singing that together. It was amazing to do a duet with Freddie.”
